September Ideas for Garden

In the kitchen garden Clear stems and leaves from vegetable beds and sow final crops of lambs lettuce and oriental salads (the latter can also be sown as an edible green manure, instead of covering beds with compost if you are otherwise going to leave them fallow for a season). Water tomatoes, beans and courgettes sparsely as their production period is coming to an end; continue to water autumn and winter vegetables regularly. Make sure you harvest fruit and vegetables regularly this month; leaving crops on the bough can lead to rot and disease setting in.

Country Garden Ideas

Classic planting For a classic summer-in-the-country planting, pack your garden beds with white cosmos, blue geraniums, catmint, salvias and yellow alchemilla, heleniums and coreopsis. For the darker notes, try Penstemon Burgundy, Astrantia major ‘Claret’, Digitalis ‘Milk Chocolate’ and Verbena bonariensis. Complete the look with English Climbing roses, such as The Pilgrim Climbing, which has a delicious tea and myrrh fragrance and repeat-flowers well.
